Stranger Things goes full-on Lovecraft in S4 trailer, and we’re here for it

Netflix has released the official trailer for the fourth season of Stranger Things.

It’s been a long wait, but the official full trailer for the fourth season of Stranger Things is finally here. The trailer is set to Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” and it brings full-blown Lovecraftian horror vibes. We get a spooky house with a mysterious grandfather clock, spontaneous levitation, an eyeless old man, and a brief glimpse of a grotesque humanoid figure sprouting the oozing tentacles that serve as the calling card of the Upside Down. Yep, we’re here for it.

(Spoilers for the first three seasons below.)

Netflix has been releasing various teasers for the last two years, each markedly different in tone—classic Goonies, Scooby-Doo, all those ’80s John Hughes movies—so it’s been difficult to get any real sense of what S4 will be like, both tonally and in terms of plot. We’ve previously reported that David Harbour is returning as Hopper, along with the rest of the main cast. Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Joe Keery (Steve Harrington), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), and Sadie Sink (Max Mayfield) all return.
